Summary:
This report presents the results of a study designed to measure and describe flow in selected areas of Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor. A total of 232 measurements of flow were made at the mouth of each estuary and within Anna Maria and Pine Island Sounds. Data collection included measuring the flows into (flood) and out of (ebb) each estuary and sound under a range of tidal elevation, wind, and freshwater inflow conditions. Measurements of tidal elevation (water-surface elevation) and wind magnitude and direction were made while flow data were being collected. Freshwater inflow data from established USGS gaging sites were used to quantify freshwater inflow.
